don´t think I am hiding after all you helped me understand a lot of the aspects of Sugar.

I saw your message.

Maybe it requires clarifying a few aspects of your request.

Right now I am constantly translating for other groups so it is not likely I will volunteer but maybe if you explain a bit more,  someone will come up.

Question to clarify:

What is a translator 

>> ... without needing much English nor technical skills.

going to do that anyone else cannot do?

My feeling from what I read in several forums is,  and please correct me if I am wrong:

Anyone wishing to venture beyond using the applications already offered to the general public such as Turtleart, Scratch, Etoys and others,  must be able to communicate in English.

It is OK if their English is a bit Tarzanesque or might smell to an automatic translator but has to be English.

All translation efforts should be directed to final users,  this is teachers and students.
